Design, analyze, and ensure regulatory compliance with one tool: OHDA from Schneider Electric.

Are you analyzing designs using spreadsheets and books full of rules and regulations? Do you have one system to calculate sag and tension on cables, and another to calculate pole loading? Today, a surprising number of utilities are using disparate systems to build and analyze designs.

At Schneider Electric, we offer OHDA to take the pain out of engineering analysis. Say goodbye to your bookshelf full of rules and regulations, and farewell to accessing multiple systems for different calculations. Say hello to OHDA.

[ArcFM™ Solution] OHDA - Overhead Design Analysis

  1. 1. OHDA Add the power of engineering analysis to Designer Make the most of your energySM
  2. 2. Overhead Design Analysis (OHDA) Design, analyze, and ensure regulatory compliance with one tool: OHDA from Schneider Electric. Are you analyzing designs using spreadsheets and books full of rules and regulations? Do you have one system to calculate sag and tension on cables, and another to calculate pole loading? Today, a surprising number of utilities are using disparate systems to build and analyze designs. At Schneider Electric, we offer OHDA to take the pain out of engineering analysis. Say goodbye to your bookshelf full of rules and regulations, and farewell to accessing multiple systems for different calculations. Say hello to OHDA. A more efficient way to perform engineering analysis OHDA combines sag and tension calculations, pole load calculations, safety regulations, and GIS in one application. Use OHDA as a stand-alone analysis tool, or import and analyze a design from Designer. Perform analysis according to your standards and regulations, and make modifications based on your analysis. With OHDA, you get all of this in a single application — and the power of 3-D. Build and navigate your design in a 3-D environment. OHDA provides the tools you need to design your poles, assemblies, guying, and cables in 3-D, as well as the terrain profile. View your design in 3-D or in a plan and profile view. With OHDA, you can visualize the distance between assemblies on a pole or the clearance of a wire over a building. It makes it easy to adjust a design by manipulating the position of elements in the display or by editing specific equipment details. Plus you can view and correct any structural limitations and clearance violations, before work begins in the field.

  3. 3. Design with confidence OHDA employs industry standards and best practices to calculate sag and tension. OHDA’s pole load analysis leverages finite element methods to determine the impact of all forces and equipment on each pole’s structural integrity. OHDA’s line clearance analysis tools make it easy to determine and set vertical clearance distance requirements. Use the Clearance Rules Editor to view and edit clearance rules for surfaces, structures, and wire-to-wire distances. While OHDA arrives out of the box with several sets of rules and regulations, you can import the specific set of rules your utility requires. The following rules and regulations are included: • GO95 • NESC • CSA A wealth of data at your fingertips Once your design passes integrity and engineering checks, you’re ready to build it in the field. OHDA provides a series of reports to make it easy to compile and print your design paperwork, including: • A profile report that displays a 2-D side view of your design on a single page • A per location report that details all of your design’s pole information and analysis • A stringing chart with the information your construction crew needs to install cables intimate knowledge of your specific operations and process controls. OHDA also harnesses the power of Designer’s GIS and adds advanced engineering calculations to quickly ensure that your construction projects comply with regulatory rules and engineering requirements.
